Daily catch

Who: Aishwarya and Abhishek Bachchan
Where: Dr Batra health awards

Aishwarya in an Indian outfit that is not (i) anarkali (ii) schizophrenic, tacky or OTT (iii) has no velvet!! How did this happen? What are the chances it will happen again - hmm, not likely:-)
Aishwarya is pretty in an simple, tangerine outfit. The color really looks good on her..

Who: Nandita Das, Rashmi Uday Singh
Where: Jatin Das art show

Nandita looks graceful and elegant at her dad's art show. A very talented actress whom we don't get a see a whole lot:(
I like Rashmi quirky and bright sari. She has some of the most interesting handbags - all of them tend to have a strong handicraft flavor to them.

On a separate note, I wanted to thank Poohkie and ClassyandFabulous for giving me the Stylish Blogger award.. love!!
I promise I will do the award post one of these days:)

Wow, I feel like Madonna!

You wish:-) Shilpa Shetty in her "travel uniform" of velour tracksuits and designer bags.
Weren't these in fashion in 90s?? What next hon, Scrunchies?

How do you wear your Birkin?

Sugar and Spice ..and nots so nice

Who: Monikangana Dutta
Where: Performance of "Lets Tango"

What the...? Do you see what I see? Whoa, I cannot get my head around this!! Looks like Monikangana wrapped some dead, furry animal around her feet.

Who: Ameesha Patel
Where: "Break ke Baad" screening, Rocky's AZA collection launch

Dressed down or dressed up, this is one celeb who is never going to make it to our Hall of Fame. And I am not complaining:-)

Style roundup

Who: Sushmita Sen
Where: Unveiling of Saisha design lable by Shama Sikander

Sushmita keeps it simple in a white frilly top and skinny jeans at a store opening. The top isnt winning any points from me but she makes the whole thing work.

Who: Sonali Bendre
Where: Oral B promotions

Another white top and skinny jeans combination. Sonali looks gorgeous and stylish and by pairing a slim fitting top with her jeans, really plays up her slim silhouette. The only sore point is the plastic, tacky beads..

Who: Prachi Desai
Where: Oral B promotions

Looks like someone has a new stylist:-) Either that or someone has done an intervention becoz Prachi has stopped wearing her plain-Jane terribly bor-r-ring dresses. Next on Prachi's to-do list, a new hair stylist!!

Who: Shahzahn Padamsee
Where: First look at "Dil to baccha hai"

Love, love the color and jeweled neckline. Shahzahn styled her her lovely asymmetrical dress with gold accessories. She looks cute and fresh.

Who: Urmila Matondakar
Where: At a wedding

Urmila wore a really loong anarkali to a wedding recently. The color is nice and the velvet at the hemline gives it a luxe look. I would have preferred this without the ugly sleeves...

Would you rather....?

Nothing interesting is happening in Tinseltown, so lets play another round of "Would you rather..."

Would you rather...
.. go on a double date with Abhi-Aish or Saif-Kareena?

.. be a golden girl or shining Star on the red carpet?

.. enjoy a home-cooked or take-out meal?

.. make a statement in a leather outfit or go chic in lace?

... forgo jewelry or makeup for 30 days?

... invest in Christian Dior Lady bag or the classic Chanel 2.55 bag?

My choices
1) Abhi-Aish - finally ask her why she giggles so much in all her interviews?
2) Golden girl
3) Home-cooked meal
4) Even though I love Jolie, its Lace for me!!
5) I will forgo jewelry - I cant live without my eyeliner!!
5) Chanel 2.55 bag

Style roundup

Wanted to wish all my readers a Happy Thanksgiving!! Have a turkey-fic Thanksgiving time feasting with your friends and family!! Muaah!!

Now that I have been nice, its time to be mean:-)

Who: Sonam Kapoor
Where: John Galliano Eye wear launch

Sonam looks polished and professional in a Christian Dior suit which she wore to the John Galliano eye wear event. The outfit has a really flattering fit thanks to the shoulder-emphasizing ruffle top and the waist-cinching skirt. She balances the dramatic top with patterned tights for a winning look.

Who: Kangana Ranaut
Where: "Once Upon a time in Mumbai" success party

Kangana wore a stunning, bright yellow dress to celebrate the success of her last movie. I love, love the pairing with McQueen clutch but the yellow shoes push the outfit into "jaundice" territory!! And she really needs to fire her makeup artist - armadillo hair?? ewww!!!

Who: Prachi Desai
Where: "Once Upon a time in Mumbai" success party

I like this look although it could have done with a better fitting at the top. Prachi looks ultra-feminine in a floral dress which she wore with "I WANT IT, NOW" inky blue pumps..

If you like this style, then Gap has a number of such dresses in two tone colors..

Who: Koena Mitra
Where: American Music Awards

I just dont get it - who the hell is inviting Koena to these events and most importantly, why??
Camel toe + drag queen shoes - what else where you expecting??

Daily Catch

Who: Shamita Shetty
Where: A.lance and Sohne success bash

Shamita wore a killer cat ( Leopard = killer cat, get it?) print dress to the event. She looks lovely. I like the addition of the skinny belt - it breaks the pattern and gives it a more stylish look. A reddish-orange clutch would have knocked the look out of the ball park..

Who: Sameera Reddy
Where: A.lance and Sohne success bash

Sameera wore a burgundy bodycon dress that borders on prom/bridesmaid territory. She went for black accessories and messy hair which really doesn't fly with such a formal outfit. Black gladiator heels and gold clutch would have been my choice of accessories...
What do you guys think - cute or prom?

Who: Esha Koppikar
Where: A.lance and Sohne success bash


Who: Vivek and Priyanka Oberoi
Where: A.lance and Sohne success bash

The newly weds also attended the event and the new bride glows in a gorgeous Tarun Tahiliani sari. Love the Nehru-collar blouse..
Now, lets all do a collective "Awwwww, so cute":-)

Katrina dons a LBD and Deepika kills a parakeet

Who: Katrina Kaif
Where: Unveiling of Barbie doll

Katrina wore a black ruffled mini to the unvieling of new Barbie dolls. The proportions of her tiered mini dress are just right but the dress is inherently very girly and sweet (and also very common and tad boring). Katrina does look like a doll which given the occasion is a perfect match!!

Katrina wore black a day earlier at a birthday party. I like this outfit better becoz of the sequins - they add instant glam to any outfit

Who: Katrina Kaif
Where: Kabir Khan birthday party

Just read Nishka Lulla's twitter feed. The barbie doll that was released is wearing an outfit designed by Nishka..Congrats, Nishka!!

Who: Imran Khan and Deepika Padukone
Where: On the set of "Saregamapa"

In some other part of the country, Deepika decided to fill the color void by wearing a bright lime green/blue Salvaar Kameej for her new movie promos. Hmm, looks like the dress sucked all the color out of her shoes!! Is that the best shoes Deepika could come up with??

Do love the colors and her nude makeup is just fab..Pity abt the shoes...

Sonam at Masaba store opening

Who: Sonam Kapoor
Where: Masaba Gupta's store opening

OMG!! Arent those earring to die for?? Gorgeous!!
Love the striking color combination of Sonam's sari but I think orange panel is too wide for my taste...As usual, she has flawless hair and makeup but she looks thin - her collar bones are jutting out. I love, love a lot of elements of this look but she needs to put on some weight..

Hate her pose in the first pic - you are not in the army you know!!

Weekend Round - The beautiful, the baffling and the bewildering

Who: Aishwarya Rai Bachchan
Where: Teachers Achievement awards

Aishwarya in another hideous outfit by Manish Malhotra. The anarkali is not bad but it looks like she misplaced the orginal dupatta/scarf and grabbed something of her way out - looks very disjointed with the rest of the dress.

Have been reading a lot of glowing reviews of her performance in "Guzaarish". Should I brave the cold, rainy weather to watch this movie??

Who: Kareena Kapoor
Where: "Golmaal 3" success party

Kareena wore a bright green asymmetrical dress which she thankfully paired with subdued accessories - gold peep-toes and woven clutch. Love the color - perfect for the coming Xmas parties but didnt like the shape or style of the dress. Thumbs down to her hairstyle too..

Who: Soha Ali Khan
Where: "Golmaal 3" success party

How cute is her romantic, ruffled top? The thin, black edging looks so polished and I love the way she balanced her voluminous top with a tailored skirt for an outfit that is sweet and simply chic.

Who: Kangana Ranaut
Where: "No problem" promotions

It really baffles me when celebs dont get their foundation color right!! Isn't that basic of makeup? sigh...
Kangana wore a black Dolce Gabbana floral dress which she completely ruined with the hair, makeup and shoes..

Who: Dia Mirza
Where: Teachers Achievement awards

I love fashion risk takers but that doesnt preclude me from making fun of them when they fall flat:p Yup, I am mean!!
This dress is what would result if you crossed a bat with a peacock!! Shoo, fly away!!

Who: Jacqueline Fernandez
Where: Teachers Achievement party, Teen magazine event

I like the color combination of the gown but the cheap trinket at the waist really kills it for me. I like Jacqueline better in her casual avatar where she is in a simple dress and flats.

Who: Esha Koppikar
Where: NGO child event

Esha in an outfit that can only have come from the "Robot" movie's costume garbage bin!!

The good and the ugly

Who: Sonali Bendre
Where: Spinnathon event

Love this look!! Pretty lady in pretty floral!! I really like the way Sonali added a gold clutch to a causal outfit and instantly upgraded it. She kept her shoes nude so as to not clash with the rest of her outfit..She is having a good run on the red carpet..

Who: Pooja Bedi
Where: Spinnathon event

Black and white always look classy and stylish when done right. Pooja wore a sweet, feminine dress which she paired with black accessories. Having a big flower on the clutch is a way too much co-ordination but overall the look works..

Who: Monikangana Dutta
Where: Spinnathon event

Camel-toe alert!! Seriously, do you think her vajayjay is able to breathe in those tighty tights??

Shop the Star Style

We are heading into cold weather but florals are still going strong in Bollywood. Florals are fun and versatile and can easily transition into winters by just adding a blazer or cardigan and some boots.
Will you be adding any florals to ur winter wardrobe?

Here is some celeb style for less. Thanks to Maitri for helping me with this!!

Sheela Ki Jawani

The post has nothing to with the song but I cant get the dayum tune out of my head!! I know I going to get hell but I like it better than "Munni badnam". There I said it..

Ok, I digress..lets look at some fashion bloopers..

Who: Shriya Saran
Where: Den party

Shriya was doing good with the silk halter neck, CD bag and silver cutout shoes but then she added shorts into the mix. It doesn't playoff well with other elements of her look..Cuffed/formal black shorts would have looked better.

Who: Shilpa Shetty
Where: Esprit SOS event

No wonder Taylor Momsen is pantless, Shilpa is wearing her jeans:P
I am ok with ripped jeans but not when it looks like someone ran a lawn mover on them!!
Do love the tailored combination of brown/gray jacket with sunny, cheery yellow t-shirt..

Who: Kiran Rao
Where: At "Dhobi Ghat" first look

Kiran with a Todd D bag at the release of "Dhobi Ghat" first look. Is she going to be a director whose bags cost more than her movies:-)

Here's the official trailer of "Dhobi Ghat".

What do you guys think?? Does look interesting...

And here is the song!!
